    100 meph runs

    i did 100( give or take a few runs) meph runs is hell wit a lvl 82 sorc of mine wit about 300%mf. i did this wit a buddy of mine, he had a lvl 85(84 when we started) elemental druid wit about the sdame mf as me. as i said we did 100 runs so here are all the things worth looking at we found.

    eth edge axe
    umes lament
    wizard spike
    arm or king leoric
    b-star
    cliffkiller
    griz armor
    21 maras ammy
    sabizis helm
    another b-star
    titans
    magewrath
    ik belt
    mavs belt

    stealskull 40%
    spineripper
    another eth edge
    tals helm
    plus a bunch of so-so items like the patriarch sword and hun sudun pike and many more.
    although the day before i found wolfhowl and demon limb and a 29 maras in about 20 runs wit a different freind when i was the only one killing. :scratch: ponder that :lol: well.....i guess it just wasnt a good day :grrr:

    I'll do 100 meph runs when I get home and post my findings so we can compare. I think I have slightly less mf than you.

    Wow, i'd take about 40 pit runs over 100 meph runs. Thats about how many i could do in that time span.

    I'm looking for good stuff quick. It is unlikely that 40 pit runs would yield any substantial loot in 40 runs, whereas Mephisto has a decent chance of dropping me some useful stuff in 100 runs. Plus I don't do pit runs, I do Mausoleum runs.

    Your chances of finding a Shako are nonexistant in the Pit compared to finding them from Meph. And 40 Pit runs in the time it takes to do 100 Meph? Unless you can do a Pit run in under 2:30, that's a lie. It takes me 1:00, sometimes under, to run Meph.

    Just to add on:

    I did about 10 Meph runs earlier and found Arachnids Mesh, and a lower resist staff. Did 2 Diablo runs with my Hammerdin, 1 Shaftstop, 1 ethereal Arreats Gaurd. :p

    I didn't think meph could drop Arachnids Mesh (prob worng)? I know pindle can't. Anyway. Also saying that you do a full meph run in 1 min sometimes quicker is just admitting that you are using map hack (not saying i have a problem with it :p) just letting you know.

    I also did 100 mephs the other day. Didn't find anything great. Corpsemorn, Verdungo's Hearty Cord, bonehew, Tal's belt, Tals Mask, Tals Orb, vipermagi are the items i remember. Back to pit for a while. I alternate. Both good.

    Now that just makes me wanna laugh, almost ticks me off..your acusing him of using Map Hack just because he can do a meph run in under 1 min? Im sorry to bust your bubble, but it is totally possible to do a run in under 1 min, I sometimes do min in about 30-45 sec if I get lucky (finding lvl 3 right next to the wp), and under 1 min is 90% of the time, unless the durance 3 is hidden somewhere.

    P.S. Those times are from the minute I enter the game, to the minute I leave the game.

    If U wanna find decent items fast, Meph is definitely the way to go. On good days over 50% of his drops have a unique (w/ 450+mf anyway). He can drop arach and azurewrath.....higher probability of finding shako there over pits due to speed factor.

    Pits is nice cuz anything can drop. But for the most part you can find enuff items off meph to trade for the items pit can drop....

    I did my 100 runs as promised but I didn't write most things that dropped, just what I picked up. I actually was using 380% MF.

    Shaftstop
    Buriza (3x)
    Hellrack
    Barnar's Star (2x)
    Nosferatu's coil

    So I had a fairly poor 100 runs, but tonight I might try again if I get bored.

    This is just idiotic in SOOO many ways.

    1. Meph can drop arachnids sash...so can pinndle. Its not like its a extremly high lvl unique.

    2. Whats wrong with doing meph in under 1minute? With my blizzard sorc, 110% fast cast getting to him, then I switch armors with merc once im there. I can find him in about 25 seconds...at the MOST. Blizzard takes about 5 seconds to kill meph...then I head thru the red TP and im done. 45-50 seconds average.

    Alot of people problems with meph runs is they exit the game while in act 3. This is like a 15 second time killer. Always go thru the red TP when your done with meph, and start the next game in act 4...much closer to the WP.

    But seriously, dont go around accusing people of using maphack. Meph runs arent hard, and the durance is fairly easy to memorize...especcially when you have max FC rate. Maybe you just need to get better with your sorc a little.

    i did roughly 60 meph runs between my two sorcs this weekend - sat- sun-sunday my luck was on
    one is lvl 86 bliz sorc w/610 mf, other 79 meteor sorc w/410 mf (when i was using my cold sorc, i ran andy/meph/pindle, onlything andy gave me was a java charm and facet)

    between the two, the mentionables i found:
    shako
    5% bul kathos
    eagle horn <my 1st in 3 yrs of playing<
    almost forgot about oculus, was doing moat trick, and opened a safe right next to me, out pops oculus! lol
    2x rainbow facets
    shaft
    2x najs armor
    numerous mid lvl uniques...

    then last night i decided to do some pit runs,(lvl 87 wind druid, 360 mf) since i hadn't done any in a while... and i've still not muled from this weekend, so my sorc' are packed
    did roughly 15, on the 13th one i was starting to get frustrated, cause i hadn't found anything worth picking up...
    14th run or so: steelrend drops
    next run, ethereal warshrikes drop
    i woulda kept going, but my wife kicked me off to play her lvl 6 sorc...(lol, she just started playing for the 1st time yesterday, i think shes hooked!)

    You're probably right about Meph but I'm 95% sure pidle can't drop arachnids. In fact I don't think he drops any of the new 1.10 elite uniques. Can anyone confirm?

    I'll concede people doing under minute runs without maphack. But i think it may creap over that minute more then you think. I normally time my runs by seeing how many i can do in an hour say.

    And can i just say fatmantan's 49 run was great!!! I probably would have stoped after that run. Just fantastic.

    Well, I have found the new 1.10 unique dimensional shard Deaths Fathom from pinndle. So its not ALL 1.10 new uniques. I know that diabloii.net has the ilvl of Arachnids wrong. It is NOT a lvl 87 item. I personally have not found one on pinndle, but I dont see why he couldnt drop it if Meph can...

    hehe... I know the feeling man. I FORCED space into the pc room to get a second rig in there just so we could both play at the same time.

    I'm just waiting for her to kick me off the 1.4 gig and relegate me to the laggy ole 733

    Good luck!

    Arachnid Mesh is indeed ilvl87. Pindleskin is mlvl86, and therefore cannot drop items that are ilvl87. Mephisto is mlvl87, and can drop from ilvl87 as long as the Treasure Class is within his realm of drop possibility (ex. Arachnid Mesh, Azurewrath).

    To clear up any confusion, there are only three items that Pindleskin cannot drop. He still can drop from the highest TC (87) but he just cannot drop items that are ilvl87.

    These three items are: Arachnid Mesh (Spiderweb Sash), Azurewrath (Phase Blade), and Tyrael's Might (Sacred Armor).
